The Advanced Depth of Field course took a difficult and complicated subject and after completing the lessons made it easy to understand. Great course! Highly recommend.

It's not just "aperture"

There is so much more that goes into "depth of field" than "aperture." It's the combined effects of focal length, focus distance, aperture, sensor size, viewing medium, and viewing distance. Are you ready to master "depth of field"?
